Lorna Brewer had an interesting post today wondering why the $100 bloggers and $400 press release writers feel they’re qualified to charge this amount. I commented that it’s for the same reason we pay more money for fine art of gourmet cooking ingredients. The people who want the best will pay for the best.
And then it dawned on me…what if the people who charge $5 for a blog post don’t feel they’re the best?
I’m going to make this short and sweet.
Most legitimate clients want the best writers for their projects. If you don’t feel you’re worthy, how can you convince potential clients to hire you? When you apply for a gig or query, you want the client to choose you out of the hundreds of applicants. If you don’t feel you’re the best person to handle these projects, why on earth would they send you a contract?
